snapped these as I was driving along a highway a couple of years ago. They've got their issues - but I thought they'd be worth sharing. feel free to C&C

I'll C&C.

On all the shots the horizon is centered, while it works in some shots, I think these could really improve with using the rule of thirds.

The sky in the second shot is too bright, I think it would be a cracker with a more defined sky.

The 3rd shot is nice but the shade in the bottom is just dead space. Try cropping the bottom off.

I'm not sure why the skies are so different bewteen the first two. My guess was the angle of the sun to the shot. I believe the first was early in the day (9 am or so)
never thought about the horizon. will have to consider that in the future. I always liked these shots but felt they were "one step off" of being print worthy, and I could never figure out why. guess the horizon was one of the reasons. never even thought about it. with the exception of laying the camera on the road, these where just quick snapshots from the truck window.

Well, they are good for snapshots from the truck window.

It's easy to just forget and line the horizon up with the centre focus points, but it actually really adds to the photo.

As an amature, I like the way they look. I will agree with the above poster about the thirds rule. I read up on that a few weeks back and was playing with it some and it does make a difference in many shots. I almost feel like photo number on is a bit underexposed but that may be monitor. All in all, I like the shots. Thanks for sharing. Rick

maybe try reducing the luminance of the blues and see what that does for the sky, I think it should work really well in the first shot.


Cheers Darren:)
